Unmatched Sustainability

Clay pipe is the natural choice for sustainable sewer pipe.

With the longest life cycle, abundant raw materials and energy-efficient production, clay pipe is the most sustainable sewer pipe available.

A natural evolution.
Clay has been used in sewers for thousands of years, but at Logan Clay, working with the cleanest, most natural pipe material and thousands of years of experience is just the beginning.

Logan Clay Products have been certified sustainable by the Institute for Market Transformation to Sustainability under their SMaRT certified program.  The SMaRT standard analyzes the impacts of a product’s entire lifecycle, from raw materials extraction to manufacturing and transportation through end-use, disposal or recycling.  The transparency of the program means anyone can look at a scorecard and make their own evaluations based on their own priorities.

Naturally sustainable.
Bottom line: no other pipe material can match all the sustainability advantages of clay. And that's particularly true for Logan Clay pipe. Here's why:

  • Lower lifetime carbon impact – The exceptional service life of clay means that resources won't have to be utilized to manufacture and install the pipe a second time. It doesn't pollute and it doesn't degrade. Now that's sustainability!
  • Efficient sourcing – 98% of the raw materials are located within 10 miles of the Logan Clay production facility.
  • Efficient production – Logan Clay uses precise, computer-controlled firing technology to reduce carbon footprint.
  • Efficient materials management – Pipe that doesn't meet our stringent standards is recycled back in to Logan's raw material stream. As a result, no product is ever wasted or placed in a landfill.

So the next time someone asks you about the sustainability of clay pipe, just tell them no other pipe material does the job better – naturally.
